The India against England Test series included five debutants - Rajat Patidar, Dhruv Jurel, Sarfaraz Khan, Akash Deep, and Devdutt Padikkal - as India demonstrated resilience despite losing the first Test match in Hyderabad. Skipper Rohit Sharma remarked that he enjoyed the company of his young, naughty colleagues and that he was brimming with emotion as they made their debuts during India's historic 4-1 Test series victory over England. In his secondary Instagram handle Team RO, the skipper expressed his feelings. "Personally, I really loved playing with them. All of them are very mischievous.


"I knew most of them well, and what their strengths are and how they want to play the game. It was just for me to give them the comfort by talking about how good they are and the good things they have done in the past. The way they responded to me and Rahul bhai (coach Rahul Dravid) was superb," Rohit said.

"I was lost in the debut of all these boys. Their parents were also there, there were a lot of emotions. I really enjoyed seeing their debuts," he added.

Rohit cited Yashasvi Jaiswal's double hundred in India's first innings score of 396 and Jasprit Bumrah's match-winning nine-wicket spree in Vizag as the key factors in the series' levelling.
